survey 4-point margin of error. it is a state that the obama war room won four years ago. it needs to keep out of romney's hands to better its odds of winning re-election. for more perspective on the final seven days of the campaign, we're going to turn to one of our favorite political reporters, carla mayor nucci. it was interesting because of course if mitt romney does not win ohio, i mean, he has to win iowa. >> this has been a battleground for how long now? those early voting -- early voting. >> jennifer: it is only six electoral votes. early voting in iowa is largely in the president's favor. >> same thing in colorado. the obama campaign has that ground game down. particularly, i went door-to-door with latino canvas workers. they were just getting it out and working like crazy. i think the obama campaign has got their stuff together there. >> jennifer: so many people have made up their mind and acted upon that early. >> in nevada, another state where the latino vote is really changing the picture. >> jennife
by state. and that's looking good for obama. no matter what you think about the electoral college. by "huffington post" count obama has 277 electoral votes to romney's 206. colorado florida virginia and new hampshire are still tossup states. according to the "new york times," obama has 243 electoral votes to romney's 206. but as calculated by nate silver, author of the 538 blog who called 49 out of 50 states correctly in 2008, nate silver says obama has 296 electoral votes compared to romney's 241. remember you need 270 to win. by any measure obama's well ahead in the tally of electoral votes. that's the only count that counts. silver, by the way also gives obama a 74.6% chance of winning this election. and i don't know about you but i kind of like those odds. we'll keep our eye on the white house for you. president obama has a statement today, i'll be there for it. we'll see you right back here again tomorrow. have a good one. >> announcer: this is the "bill press show."
that he faces re-election in a pretty democratic state, and obama understands that he faces re-election next week. those are political realities. they're politicians, and they don't deny that. but they were doing their jobs, and i think christie's role here, as i'm sure you know as a former governor, it was a big deal for christie to come out and do what he did. that also really hurt romney. >> eliot: yes, that was the political maneuver of the week. he played it perfectly. switch gears for a moment. i don't want to say that anything is over and done, but the president is comfortable. the united states senate, a pivot or blocking position for the past couple of years. any particular race there that you think is interesting that has evolved that is demonstrative with what in our politics over the last couple of months? >> i think there are several. the north dakota race there is a good chance. i think missouri, claire mccaskill has a good chance to hold her seat. the most important race that i would point to is the indiana race which is richard murdoch the tee party republican w
